FIFA clear Juventus over Pogba transfer to Man Utd

Juventus have been cleared of any wrongdoing over the £89.3m transfer of Paul Pogba to Manchester United.

FIFA cleared United in June but opened proceedings against Juventus, with claims the Serie A side's arrangement with agent Mino Raiola could have breached third-party ownership rules.

But FIFA has now confirmed no action will be taken, with a spokesman telling Press Association Sport: "The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided to dismiss all charges against the club Juventus FC for the apparent infringements of the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP) in the frame of the transfer of the player Paul Labile Pogba given that the evidence available was not sufficient to establish to the appropriate standard of proof, that art. 18ter of the RSTP had been breached.

"The Disciplinary Committee nevertheless underlined the importance of always preserving the independence of clubs and players in recruitment and transfer-related matters in order to ensure the integrity of matches and competitions."
